There are definitely musical genres that are easier to capture in a music video than footwork. That being said, Ashes57 does a stellar job of mirroring the music's frenetic shuffling of form and content in this video for DJ Spinn & Taso’s “Burn That Kush,” off Hyperdub's forthcoming DJ Rashad tribute compilation, Next Life, due November 11 with all proceeds going to the late genius’ son. The video’s got everything: from frantically spliced graphics of the words BURN THAT KUSH, to virtuosic dancers, to shots of the Tek Life crew—including Rashad himself—smoking lots of weed. Also, the song itself is really, really good. Today would have been Rashad’s birthday, so please take a moment to commemorate him and be sure to buy that record and support his son if you can.
